It had me until the end...

I thought the acting was phenomenal and the story was interesting yet, heartbreaking. Pettyfer made a great director for this, especially since it was his first time. The biggest problem I had with the movie was the ending. I kept hoping things would work out for Harley and that the police couldn't possibly believe he actually killed his lover. I was sorely disappointed with the ending because Harley ends up in prison and his baby sister is stuck living with their uncle and two psychotic killer sisters. Even if Harley did feel guilty about the incest, he wouldn't have let Jody live with those other two psycho sisters. I don't believe for a moment that he would take the blame for the murder his sister commited after he criticized his mother for doing the same thing. That's just not logical.

A tense study in repressed emotion

This Shakespearian-like social realism-tragedy is very well made. It would be strange to call it an entertaining film but it is engaging and superbly acted. Alex Pettyfer shows great depth as an actor here; and Juliette Lewis is exceptional as well. Her presence on screen leaves one with a lingering feeling of unease and sympathy. Thematically this piece of work is tough and hard to swallow at times (issues if child abuse, repressed anger and sexual urges, as well as poverty) but it is always watchable. Recommended.

We're really not that different

1993 Bonnie Altmyer (Juliette Lewis) goes to prison to care for the murder of her abusive husband. Harley (Alex Pettyfer) not the best bag boy at Robinson's Grocery, is tasked to care for his three sisters. He is stressed and starts an affair with a married woman (Jennifer Morrison). Harley is a dowdy sad sack. He can afford beer, but not a comb. The film is a slow-moving drama, but it keeps you engaged. If you didn't know what the topic of the film was about, it sneaks up on you with a redundant twist ending that is a bit poetic. Guide: f-word. sex. No nudity.
